So I think I'm going to start Ridley in place of Ahmad Bradshaw. I still need to decide on my W/R flex spot:

- Andre Brown (I think this is a solid bet for 10 points)
- Dwayne Bowe (lots of upside)
- Danny Amendola (lots of targets from Bradford so could be an easy 10 points)

I'm in a non-PPR league; 1 point for every 10 yards; 6 points for a TD.


Honestly I would go with Bowe, you basically know what you're gonna get with him and the Saints Defense is awful (and their my favorite team so i'm not biased)

So I got a trade offer in one of my 10 team .5 point per reception league and I don't know if I should take it and wanted some opinions.

I get RG3
I give Demarco Murray

I'm not too sold on RG3 but I need help at QB, since i went so heavy on RB in the draft but i'm not convinced RG3 will keep it up.

Heres my team:
QB - Luck, Schaub
WR - Torrey Smith, Roddy White, Brandon LaFell, Kendall Wright, and Kenny Britt
RB - Leasean McCoy, Demarco Murray, Doug Martin, Ryan Matthews, Peyton Hillis, Ben Tate
TE - Hernandez, Witten

In Topic: Obama Care Could Be Deadly

Seems noone wants to answer the question

How is this good when before i was making 25,000 with health care and now my Company dropped my heath care meaning im going to have to go buy it for 3,000 (good luck finding it for a family for 3000 a year)

now im only making 22,000

so how is this helping .


The obvious answer is if your company was already providing insurance to its employees before ObamaCare, then why would they choose to no longer offer the insurance after the fact. Your question doesn't make any sense. Certain companies offer benefits in an attempt to get better workers.

In Topic: Can we talk about the baby boomers?

I agree that our problems as a country are directly related to the behavior, motivations, and actions of the baby boomers. As Nixmahn referenced above, they grew up in an era of insane growth and prosperity and have done everything possible to ensure they continue to receive the benefits of that growth regardless of the problem it causes. They are the generation of FYIGM. They were the ones that enjoyed fair wages and employment opportunities. They were the ones who were allowed to have pensions and social security. They were the ones that didn't have to worry about obscene healthcare costs. They were the ones that dragged their heels and refused to come up with alternative energy policies. They were the ones that could own a home and start a family and not have to worry about how to afford it making making shit wages. They were the ones that weren't required to have to taken on massive student loan debt in the hope to even get a living wage.

They were the one's who broke the societal contract. We were told our entire lives that if we played by the rules they set then the we would see prosperity too. Go to college and get a degree, it doesnt matter what in because you'll be successful with just that piece of paper. I think its ironic how our generation is considered the ones with an entitlement mentality when reality shows otherwise. We are the generation that is going to end up worse off then the previous one. We are the ones being told we have to accept less and stop whining. We are the ones that are being buried in all the bullshit from the boomers unreasonable quest of continued growth. The way i see it, our generation hasn't asked for anything more than what was promised to us.
